Telling tales from around the world

And now for something a little different…

ElvisC-94 Elvis Costello was in town tonight – one of my favourites since the 70’s… and the regular photographer for local music website couldn’t make it, so I filled in and grabbed a few shots. Possibly the worst conditions ever – no pit – I had to stand at the edge of the seats by the 1st 3 rows – one angle only… so not much of his band… but I rather like this shot. I wouldn’t mind doing some more of this!

Here’s a link to the review of the show and a gallery of the photos.

    • Yeah – did a brilliant version of Allison (and 28 other songs.) Did not do Veronica, though, which I didn’t expect as it was not a melancholy set. I hope I can scrounge up a few more of these… It would be fun to do on a semi-regular basis. Not every night though… my party days are a bit behind me now…

    • I do recall! It really is fun – and since you have a short time frame – it’s not physically exhausting like say… weddings… Though since I was out shooting for 4 hours in middle of the day and then last night – I am seriously knackered!

    • Never forget the first time he was on Saturday Night Live – knocked my socks off, but I wasn’t sure if he was a genuine performer or comedy act. The whole Buddy Holly look without the Buddy Holly demeanour confused me…

      • Same thing for me. I couldn’t figure out if the glasses were a schtick.
